Tea Time

Friday, February 15, 2013


"Just for Me" today February 2013 Challenge, I had a cup of tea. There is something about a cup of tea in a peaceful place that truly unwinds me. I am glad that I took this time today because I felt so much more relaxed and more focus on what I needed to accomplish today. “Be still and know that I am God…” Psalm 46:10. emoticon emoticon

    It is a great practice to balance the excersize with relaxationtimes. It keeps the cortisol stress hormones in check and it feels so good to grasp the sense of our body, mind, and sou at peace. So glad you enjoyed you tea.

Reminiscing

Reminiscing
Valentine’s Day” Just for Me” Day 14 Today, my hubby and I enjoyed a drive in the country to watch the sun set with a small snack for Valentine’s Day. It was a wonderful drive, however the scenery was dreary because the trees were all dark and there was not one blade of green grass. The forest looked as if it had been torched, however we did not focus on the darkness of the forest; instead we reminisced of the beauty that will take over the forest in a few weeks when spring arrives. Looking forward helps us to be hopeful and today’s drive was a gentle jog to our memory of what the future holds when we keep our eyes looking ahead. "You have fixed all the boundaries of the earth; you have made summer and winter." Psalm 74:17 (ESV)

Jeans

    Good for you! I have a small goal for myself. Every time I lose 10 lbs. I am buying myself a pair of jeans. I am going to go to Walmart and get cheap pairs, but I am still going to do it. I have lost 10 lbs. and plan on going close to my birthday so I have something to wear for my birthday dinner. Congrats and keep up the good work! emoticon emoticon

Navy Bean Soup

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Just for me 2013 February Challenge—Day 12 today, I made navy bean soup. Mom always made navy bean soup while we were growing up. I love to make a big pot of navy bean soup to eat and to freeze for other meals. Later hubby and I eat the soup with lunch as a great protein booster or as a main dish by adding other ingredients. Navy bean soup can be enhanced with meat, vegetables and other goodies. I just love navy bean soup and it is good for us. 1 Corinthians 10:31(ESV) “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God”. emoticon emoticon

Reaching Out

Monday, February 11, 2013

“Just for Me 2013 February Challenge—Day 11 Today I called a lady who has been sick to check on her. She is a source of pain to most people in the community; however I wanted to reach out to her to let her know that I care about her. She was so happy to hear from me and I was glad to share a few moments with her. Reaching out made to her made me feel good as well and I am glad that I did. When we think of giving, we think of money, but most of the time people need us to take a little time with them or give them a kind word. "The Lord loves a cheerful giver" (2 Cor. 6:7). emoticon emoticon

    Good for you. It is so much harder to give our time and ourselves than money. You probably made her day more than you will ever know.

  You've made a very good point. We all need to stop and take time to give to others, even if it seems like such a small thing to us, it could be a huge thing to someone else.
Thank you
